John Vogel’s beautifully handcrafted furniture embodies a distinct South African vernacular. His products draw inspiration from the specifics of our land and he believes in creating works that stand apart from the mass-produced and readily available.
“John Vogel has a design background in architecture and first started creating furniture as a student. Although he has worked in many materials, his strongest affinity is for timber and most of his inspiration comes from the natural world and the exploration of organic forms.
He designs, prototypes and manufactures in-house, and his Cape Town workshop is equipped to supply quality products anywhere in the world.
He believes strongly in a sustainable business model: tree planting is funded from products sold and in time more wood will be replaced than used.”
